Each solution tries to pull your data and process architecture in their direction, which has direct impact on your operational efficiency and business model. You need an architecture that will work with your unique business model and processes. Independent ERP consultants like ElevatIQ can help design this architecture without being biased toward one system such as ERP or E-commerce.
Digital transformation looks easy on paper, but it's much harder to execute. Each minor ad-hoc need that needs to be customized could potentially cost millions of dollars. It could also be a cause of system failure. The digital transformation initiatives require careful analysis of each need, standardizing them to the out-of-the-box process flows, and carefully selecting each system with the highest return and least financial risks. ElevatIQ can help save these disasters.
Cheaper deals on their face may turn out to be the most expensive because Software contracts have a lot of moving pieces. It requires deep subject matter expertise in several cross-functional areas. Independent ERP Consultants such as ElevatIQ have previous quotes from 200+ ERP vendors from the market. They can compare and identify the red flags before it's too late.
Let's face it. Unfortunately, whatever goes in the ERP system remains the most secret IP of your business. Sometimes, this secret might not be well-documented and might only be supported by developers who originally wrote it. They might also not share the code with external developers to support it. We ensure there is no tight coupling to any specific software and ensure the financial sustainability of the organization.
The legacy processes, systems, and data are the major cause of overengineering of new systems and architecture. The new systems won't help with financial or operational efficiency unless you streamline your legacy processes and data. It requires careful analysis of each process. It also requires performing a change and fit-gap analysis that helps teams visualize the as-is and to-be and why the change is necessary to gain financial efficiencies and remove operational bottlenecks.
Replacing your ERP or any other systems in your architecture is not always the solution for all of your system or performance issues. You may have superior financial return and less disruption by better integrating your existing systems or simply optimizing data and processes inside. These decisions are very complex and have implications for every aspect of your business. Independent ElevatIQ consultants such as ElevatIQ can help mitigate such risks.
